Why is there a long delay between dialing number and hearing it ring?
I just got a new modem, Arris BGW210. People who call me tell me they sometimes hang up thinking the call is not connecting because they do not hear a ring. But I get one ring before they hang up. When I call out, I also notice a very long delay between dialing and hearing a ring. I have also hung up and redialed calling out.
Why is there such a long delay between dialing a number and hearing a ring for both incoming and out going calls?
